It's hard to say if this is bad planning or deliberate choice. None of Trump's suits fit that well. You can do better getting an off the rack cheap suit at a department store. It's pretty clear a lot of his bizarre mannerisms are deliberate choice, like his stupidly long ties or veering forward as he stands. I am assuming his giant, boxy suits are of a similar vein.

Factor in his silly handshake games, where he tries to surprise other men by yanking them off balance during a friendly hand shake, you start to see what a petty mindset is driving these decisions. Trump is still subscribing to "power tie" mentality of the 80's, where inconsequential details are somehow avenues for asserting dominance. He's a petty man down to the core, and everything about him, including his wardrobe and mannerisms, signal it.

Just a normal family, standing in the normal way.
